Hello Group,

I am a novice painter who likes to explore military themes. Here is a link to my recent sketch. All comments and feedback are welcome.

Thanks,
Bob

I'm sorry to report that I never served. As for the weapon - I used a WWII photo taken at Iwo Jima (if that helps identify it).

Sometime I do - it depends on what I am trying to capture. Portraits are very challenging but I have done a few. Here's one that I did recently of a Marine.

^Very nice^

but how about painting a picture that the troop is happy like after victory or when he found out that is going home?

think about it

I have actually done that too! Here's a portrait of a soldier in a lighter mood.
